Your shooting stances are important and as always, remember in a firefight the target shoots back. You stance is what sets you up for your next move, because in a tactical situation you fire and move. Left foot in front of the right if you are a right-handed shooter, and feet shoulder width apart. Your weight needs to be shifted slightly forward so your feet are braced and your body balanced for the recoil.
